What is Sports Medicine?
Sports medicine is an area of medical practice which provides treatment of injuries resulting from athletic activities. A physician practicing sports medicine focuses on sports-related medical services. This may include preventative measures such as conditioning and injury prevention, as well as treatments such as osteopathic manipulation, rehabilitation, or injections. Sports medicine physicians will often treat athletes with back pain due to strain and injury placed on the back from various sports including bicycling, weight lifting, running, and golf.
Sports Medicine specialists work with professional, individual, and team athletes as well as those participating in recreational physical activities.
